    The old Ideal gas checks I have are brass and the new Hornady are gilding metal, I don't remember any made of pure copper. I haven't herd the other about gc shanks being different sized either.

    =45acp Can I suggest, you try and get a copy of HI-TEK coating instructions before you dive in. HI-TEK is nothing like Powder coating. The only similarity between Powder coating and HI-TEK, is that they are both powders. That is where any...

    I am aware of several such products on the market. I do not know composition of Fuel doctors stuff, but I am aware that a lot use materials like Quaternium compounds as anti bacterial. They work very well as bug killers. Some also have detergent...

    DrewP Thanks for compliment. There is an old saying, "if all else fails, read instructions"..... In fact, now that you mention it, I developed the coating initially for mines. I designed a product, that sealed metal, lubricate and to protect from...

    Ah, that makes sense. So in theory, something like old gold that Petander uses is not as susceptible due to being a yellow already, but of course, if you bake the poop out of it, it will get darker with the yellow to tan colour of the over cooked...

    slide I have been trying for years and since I joined this site. Any uploads should work seamlessly if pictures are in a Jpeg mode. From what I was told, the "system" should automatically adjust uploads to allow posting. I don't know how that...

    I have given up trying to upload any photos. I get answers to the effect, "file too large" or "unable to upload". I am just no good at this technical stuff of uploading pictures.

    Yesterday, I also was pondering the meaning of life, the universe and everything. I was loading some 410610 (a 41 cal SWC very similar to the 35 caliber 358156). The previous day, I had worked up a load to Max for my 3" 657. The GC'd 410610...
